“Thank you so much to everyone at Ohel Sarah for the amazing work that you do.

Kol Hakavod!”

Mrs. Celia Gould, spouse of former British Ambassador to Israel.

“Seeing young men working in nature is beautiful and inspiring! In this day and age, where technology suppresses man’s ability to really connect to his surroundings, I am impressed by Ohel Sarah’s encouragement of its students to appreciate and live nature.”

Mr. Chaim Messing, Chairman of the Jewish National Fund, Central Israel, during his visit to Ohel Sarah’s Therapy Greenhouse.

“It is wonderful to see these women working and being involved in meaningful employment. I am a staunch believer that people with special needs deserve to feel like contributing individuals in the community. Ohel Sarah serves as an advocate for adults with disabilities and advances their right to take an active part in society”

Mr. Eli Dadon, Chairman of the Israel National Lottery.

“I have been deeply impressed by the devotion, high professional standards, care and warmth and individual attention that each student at the organization receives…and by its constant aspiration towards advancement and improvement – all carried out with the purpose of providing the best possible care to the students.”

Safeguarding Conference

In a pioneering step, Ohel Sarah’s Education Division held a conference on the topic of safeguarding special needs children and adults. It was open to the parents of our members, as well as professionals in the field of special education and the wider community.

There was a great turnout, with over 300 attending, which demonstrated that that is a key priority for everyone in the audience. The parents of special needs children came to hear and understand how to keep their children safe.

The conference was chaired by Mrs Karin Trabelski, Director of the Education section of Ohel Sarah. The Mayor of Bnei Brak, Rabbi Rubinstein addressed the audience, praising Ohel Sarah for raising the flag and taking the initiative to join the municipality in their effort to eradicate abusive behaviour. Every attendee received a folder containing a booklet on safeguarding.
